Bulk Pea Export Pace Quiet in July

WINNIPEG - Sep 4/20 - SNS -- The Canadian Grain Commission (CGC) reports 60,900 metric tons (MT) field pea were loaded for export through licensed terminal and primary elevators which are required to report to it all grain movement in July.

The CGC data does not include exports in containers or from non-reporting terminals. It is important to recall that the CGC data may not match official export data. The CGC counts product when it is loaded to ships, while Statistics Canada bases its calculations on the bill of lading date.

This lifted bulk export loadings for field peas for the 2019-20 marketiong year to 2,513,300 MT, up 18% from the 2,122,300 loaded during the same period in the previous marketing year.

Movement during the month was sharply lower than the 197,900 MT shipped the previous month and 69% below the 195,300 MT shipped the same month last year.
